  1. Thank you so much, @Aussie Bear❤️We are happy Covid has been a biotch, but we are trying to make the best of it. I hope you are doing well, my friend! Hugs xoxo
  2. @PapaDavid is 14 months post op, and I’m 3.5 years out as of the 17th of this month. Even though I’ve had some regain, I thought some more current pics were a good idea. Here we are, a couple of nights ago, celebrating our upcoming 26th wedding anniversary. This is only the second time we have eaten in a restaurant since the lovely Rona came to visit, and probably the last for a while since we are spiking again. I threw in a couple of others as well The pics are out of order, ugh, lol. The last two are of our anniversary dinner, and the first two are obviously comparison pics ❤️ I’ll ne
  3. Miss you, @TammyP❤️ Hope you’re doing well, my friend!!
  4. Therapy helps a lot. I see an alcohol counselor and my regular therapist. I hope you get some benefits from it ❤️
  5. Yes ma’am, I will be taking the naltrexone for life. I actually think I may need a higher dose, as bariatric patients with malabsorption tend to need. The cravings have come back and it’s tough fighting them off. I’m pretty discouraged, but I do have a ton of support...I just don’t think my brain is letting me accept that support just yet. We are in a tough spot, my friend. My best advice is to talk to anyone in the field that has knowledge about what you’re going through, and accept the help!! I’m hoping to start Wellbutrin soon, and that is supposed to help with the food cravings, as well as
  6. Hey CJ! Nice to hear from you I’ve gained around 40 pounds, so don’t stress over 15...and you’ve even lost half of that already! That’s great! Check out my thread “This is why I’ve been gone for so long” in the socialize section, and that will explain my weight gain. I’m working on getting back on track, and I’m trying to remember that I’m still 150 pounds down, so I haven’t lost the fight. I’ve just taken a detour. I’m sure it was quite trying, working from home and having the extra time to experiment with food...plus having access to it all day. This virus has hit us all pretty hard. I lost
  7. Hey Tracy!! Thanks for the congrats!! I think I’m looking to get back down to 145-150 at this point. The frustrating point of this whole situation...needing to clean my house out of all junk food...is that it shouldn’t BE HERE in the first place!! I KNOW better than that! I’m fighting the food demon and the alcohol demon at the same time, and my brain feels like it’s going to explode I know I can do this. I’ve done it before, and I’ll do it again. I have an appointment with my endocrinologist today for my yearly thyroid cancer check, and he’s going to definitely question the weight gain, so I
  8. Hi Lori Thanks for the congrats It’s been rough, but I’m hanging in there. I’m well acquainted with the 5 day pouch test, and have been considering trying it again to help kick the cravings, but I’m on an antibiotic right now for a sinus infection that needs to be taken with food. So I have to wait until I’m done with that to consider trying the 5DPT again. Even with my regain, I’m still down 150 pounds, so not all is lost. I know the 30-40 pounds I want to lose won’t come off easy like they did immediately post op, and I’m ok with that. And at least it’s only 30-40 pounds and not 190
  9. Decaf tea shouldn’t be an issue...like Aussie says it’s just flavored warm water. I’ve only ever drank chamomile tea, so that’s not been a problem for me. My husband, on the other hand, just had his bypass last year, and still drinks caffeine. It is a diuretic, and I worry about that because I don’t feel he gets enough fluids in to make up for what he loses from the caffeine. But he’s a big boy so he has to monitor his fluid intake. I can’t drink caffeine at all because I have heart issues, and it gives me palpitations. So decaf tea should not be a problem for you at all post op. Good luck wit
  10. I’m not from Australia, but the forum has become pretty quiet over the past year-year and a half. @Aussie Bear is right, people do tend to move on once we get comfortable after the surgery and recovery has happened, and we get to the maintenance phase. I just posted something not too long ago about feeling bad that I haven’t been here very much at all lately, because I know the new members need the same support that I got when I was a newbie. I’ve been trying to check in more often for that reason, and I want to be here to help in any way that I can. I’m glad to hear that you are doing w

    What a beautiful little angel!!! I’m in love! ❤️
  13. I’m 39 days sober today!! Thank you so much!! I’m still struggling a lot with my weight though...I gained the 6 pounds back, plus a couple more...ugh. I’m still not 100% committed to getting back on track, and I don’t know exactly why I can’t get my focus back and start getting this extra weight off. I remember being so strict and focused when I started my pre op diet...it was like a light switch got flipped and in my mind, eating anything off plan was out of the question. And I stayed that way for well over a year, with the exception of the wine. Now I find myself going back to my old habits
  14. @PapaDavidsays thank you!! He feels happy and healthy!
  15. Thank you, Cinwa! I have a hard time staying away from my own cookies. I’m thinking the reason it’s not showing yet is because I’m still in my honeymoon. But I do dump if I eat too many, so that’s probably helping me. Trish loves my lemon cookies and the oatmeal raisin pecan the best. She has a hard time staying away from them too...I feel guilty about that. She says it’s her decision whether or not to eat them and not to blame myself, but they are hard to resist if they are in the house. I’m glad you like them so much!! I love baking things that people love to eat, lol. ^^^David asked m
